7:05 am
take pictures. it's very point to discover whose fault this is. just moments ago, we heard a very loud explosion. it was a controlled explosion to open up a hole in case the underwater divers need to escape. george? >> the ship's captain is facing possible criminal charges for deliberately steering the ship off course. he's also accused of abandoning ship. that's about the most dishonorable thing a captain can do. >> reporter: you're right. they're pushing hard to put the captain on trial and behind bars. building a case that his behavior was reckless, cowardly, and deadly. the 52-year-old captain was brought to court from the jail where he's been held since saturday. the growing evidence shows he was responsible for the accident and failed to protect the
7:06 am
passengers. he claims that the ship hit unchartered rocks. he said we were the last to leave. that's not true, according to an account to the captain. captain, this is an order, now i am in charge. get back on that ship and coordinate the operations. there are already kaushlties. captain, how many? port authority, you should tell me that. what do you want to do, go home? now you get back on that ship and tell us what can be done. how many people are still there and what do they need. captain -- okay, okay, i'm going. as the captain, the dark-haired debonair schettino was described as a favorite, especially of the women. leaving the passengers behind would be a clear violation of

7:09 am
there's an investigation that needs to be conducted. if he violated the rules and policy, he should be penalized for it. >> i believe he delayed the evacuation order and that is what cost lives. if he had ordered it immediately, they could have lowered all of the lifeboats on both sides of the ship and gotten everyone off. and so, i think his actions caused the loss of life. >> and tell us about the actions of the crew, alex, after the accident happened. >> i thought they did absolutely everything they possibly could to help us. they had no direction. and obviously, they had not faced something like this before. they stayed with us. and helped us as best they knew how. i don't have any complaint with them. we saw no upper level leadership at all. and that is where i think the
7:10 am
fault lies. there was no one giving directions from the officer level on the ship. >> you both were able to make it to a lifeboat. alex, can you tell us what happened once you were in the boat? >> well, it took five tries to get in. we kept going to lifeboats and they were already full. and people were pushing and shoving and screaming and there were some jumping on the lifeboat even though it was already full. we got to the fifth one. it looked like we were going to get on. but you really did have to be aggressive and push your way. art was behind me and pushing me forward. and when we got to where we could get on, i heard someone say there are nine spots left. >> your family was very, very concerned about you, including your nephew, jesse tyler ferguson, an actor on "modern
7:11 am
family." he called you from the golden globes to make sure you were okay? >> he did. we got out of italy to barcelona, i think sooner than many of the people did. i got home and i had a message from him. >> your nephew and other family members relieved that your back here and safe and sound. alex and arthur, thank you so much for sharing your story with us. you all take care. >> our pleasure, thank you. >> glad they're okay. now to politics, "your voice, your vote." a new poll out this morning that shows mitt romney decisively breaking away from the pack. now holding a 2-1 lead over his closest rivals for the nomination. it shows a dead heat in november with romney holding a one-point lead over president obama. the republican rivals have not given up the fight yet. they took it to him in south carolina last night. john berman is here with more. >> reporter: here's a telling number. 72% of republican voters think

7:14 am
>> reporter: you could see romney get rattled, rick perry, rick santorum and newt gingrich have strong moments. romney could win because his sprintered opponents may take more votes from each other than romney. >> if he wins on saturday, it seems impossible for any of them to come back. to major security breach with a popular online retailer urging the customers to change their account passwords right now. zappos has more than $1 billion in sales every year. they seem to be the victims of hackers. >> reporter: zappos is famous for its outstanding service, free shipping, and as we recently profiled, the unconventional business model. >> welcome to the zoo. >> we create fun and a little
